HTC One S Chipping Issue Addressed
HTC is apparently experiencing some problems with its newly launched One-series devices. First there were the battery life issues of the One X, and now it seems there’s a problem with the One S as well. Apparently, some users have received devices with faults in the finish of the aluminum unibody, causing chipping. Thankfully, HTC was quick to respond, offering to replace the smartphones that have been affected and assuring that all the future ones will be produced using a corrected manufacturing process. Below is the official statement by the Taiwanese company.
HTC is committed to delivering a high quality product and great experience for all our customers. There have been a few, isolated reports of this issue. The finish on the One S was laboratory tested as being at a hardness similar to ceramic. While that’s hard, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible to damage. Regardless, HTC takes quality very seriously and are providing all customers with an immediate fix and we are implementing some small changes to ensure customers do not experience this issue in the future.
HTC One S is inferior to the range-topping One X on paper, but it’s probably got all the performance you’ll ever need. Effectively taking over the niche that used to be covered by the beautiful but flawed Sensation, it improves in just about every area. It features a powerful 1.5 Ghz dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM, 16 gigs of internal memory, and notably the latest version of Bluetooth. On the back there’s the same camera seen on the One X, and despite missing a few cores, One S also can shoot HD videos and capture still at the same time. The screen measures at 4.3 inches and has a very respectable resolution of 540×960 pixels. Ice Cream Sandwich is standard fit.
